    Had a good stay, but my only concern was 1 the whole of the 2nd floor smelt like other guests was smoking illegal substances and was strong it was finding it difficult to sleep and I'm very concerned that the fire alarm went off and there was no one there from the hotel to attend or turn off it sounded like it was faulty even when it went off the ring or alarm sounded faulty and quite concerning if it was a real fire. No member of staff was present we all just waited in the reception and in the end went back to bed can this be looked into as a serious breach of health and safety, apart from that it was a please stay.

    Leaving the place

    The rooms were dirty no plugs for either bath or sink and when told reply was I did ask them to buy somemore more but they haven't done so yet so cant really help you as for the bar well have a nice selection of beers only problem only one really worked fire alarm went off at 2 am staff didnt bother too evacuate building only about a dozen of us went too assembly point even though children were staying none of them turned up or their parents other guests just looked at us from the bedroom windows no staff came out too even check if everyone was out a hotel guest had too turn off the fire alarm because staff weren't trained in how too do so and then just let the guests back in without checking when informed that the zone activated was basement storage room they didnt check just said guest smoking in room couldn't reset fire system as it kept tripping fire in basement so they just turned it off and left it and told us too go back too bed stay away from this hotel

    The location was beautiful, the view was wonderful outside the window,

    The décor was alright, the paint work and furniture was awful and some areas smelt. The cornflakes where stale and you couldn't chose what you would like for the cooked breakfast not impressed at all.
